Non Slip Steel Ladder Rung Covers for Roof Access Ladder at Walgreens Store

The Situation:

Walgreens contacted H.B.D. Construction, a full-service general contracting and construction company, with concerns regarding a roof access ladder at their store in Springdale, AR. The ladder providing workers access to the roof of the building did not comply with Walgreens safety standards, along with proposing a major safety hazard. Slick ladder rungs give workers the opportunity to slip and fall off the ladder and become injured. H.B.D. Construction contacted SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring to help improve the safety of the Walgreens store by reducing the risk of falling off the roof access ladder.

The Solution:

Walgreens implements safety requirements for their buildings to keep their employees, contractors, and customers safe. Ladder rungs must be flat surfaces with slip resistance. Slip.NOT® steel ladder rung covers meet the Walgreen standards perfectly. SlipNOT® provided Walgreens with 20 Grade 2 steel ladder rung covers.

The steel ladder rung covers were 1-1/4” x 1/2” x 1/8” x 19” in a mill finish. The non slip rung covers were fitted over Walgreens existing one inch round ladder rungs. Steel ladder rung covers are a great option for refurbishing worn ladders, and far exceed ADA and OSHA standards. Once attached, the risks associated with the roof access ladder reduced dramatically.

The Impact:

The project manager on this assignment said the Walgreens requirements for a roof access ladder are a “perfect match to your product.” By working closely with SlipNOT® employees, the project manager was able to get Walgreens the steel ladder rung covers quickly. The roof access ladder is currently being used by workers who are more confident they will not slip and get injured at the Springdale Walgreens store.
